largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and putting forth a healthcare plan that makes sense. everything else really doesn't matter. it's all about wages, jobs, and health, that's it. if the g.o.p. does not consolidate its message, it will not capitalize on mr. obama's troubles. it's as simple as that and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction, with us the former governor of alaska and vice presidential candidate sarah palin has a new book out called "great tidings and great job protecting the heart of christmas. two segments tonight. am i going wr
